Have a great weekend.
sad…..always reminded me of this hair accessory
Damn you, Willis.
Well, someone had to say it.
Thirded. Losing a pet is terribly hard, even though you know it’s inevitable.
Damn you, Willis. Our own hamster died this week. Too soon, man. Too soon.
I also wish you a good weekend
All the sads. Sad head.
He’d better rise from the dead or i’m coming for you, Willis!
He probably won’t. But Mike might puppetify his corpse to make it seem that way.
NOPE! Chuck Testa.
…but I’m still sad about snkrs:(
No, no, mike will do much worse. He’ll buy her a new hamster. Because eventually it will die and she’ll have to go through this all over again. Assuming it doesn’t cut into his ‘fun time’ with her, it’s the perfect plan.
I could see him making a puppet with it.
Makes a puppet then the day their child is born gives it to them. The kid falls in love playing with the dead stuffed hamster. So there her kid is. In her hands playing with a dead hamster that she once loved, probably putting it in their mouth too. What should be the happiest day of Amber’s life becomes a disturbing memory.
They always come back wrong.
Are we going to witness a shoebox burial now?
Knowing this crowd? I’m betting on a “burial at sea.”
Viking hamster funeral.
I was going to say pirate funeral, but then realized I don’t know how pirates honor their dead other than drinking more rum…
Taking a page from the proposal suggestions a while back – Space viking/pirate style – send him into the sun, or orbit.
Wait – space hamsters were a prime kinetic energy source for gnomish space faring vessels and they also doubled as an emergency fo …… errr … yeah, orbit sounds reasonable.
Dumbing of Age and Shortpacked, sending you off into the weekend with a barrel of laughs.
“It’s funny, because the squirrel gets dead!” #Up
…… Now I’m remembering when my dwarf hamster Roland dies a few years ago.
Came from from work and he was bleeding from the mouth and died about an hour later . I’m still convinced it was foul play .
Farewell thee noble Skrs
I wonder how Mike is going to handle this.
I think he’s handling a few dozen Moms.
hopefully he’d be drunk first, better for all parties.
(now THERE’s something i never thought i’d say…)
Oh God… that last panel…
That has to be the saddest-while-being-a-little-gross thing I have ever seen in this comic
Yeah, I did something similar when my parrot (quite unexpectedly!) died of old age. I write “unexpectedly” because I was told she’d have ten more years in her.
Are you sure she was actually dead and wasn’t just pining for the fjords?
(Sorry if that was in poor taste, but I saw a dead parrot reference and couldn’t help myself)
Well, we can say that even in the end, Amber was still a great mother. She never left her baby alone in his time of need and always made sure to make things a bit better for him.
…I gotta admit I’m actually getting a little sniffly right now. I can’t even muster up a decent “Damn you, Willis.”
This, combined with yesterday’s strip, made me cry.
Don’t worry, Amber. He’s in ham-ham heaven now.
Where the cedar chips are always fresh, the exercise wheels are made of gold, and the water bottle hanging on the wall dispenses champagne.
And now, a piece of music Snkrs wanted to have played at his funeral.
::Plays really fast version of “Whistle Stop” by Reggie Miller on the bagpipes::
Shoot, I mean Roger Miller. Dang late-night posts, my brain is not running on a full tank.
Ah Reggie Miller, the sole reason I’m an Indiana Pacers fan.
OK, now that image cheered me up. Old school Pacers fan here.
Yea and God said to Abraham; “You will kill your son Isaac.” And Abraham said, “I can’t hear You, you’ll have to speak into the microphone.” And God said, “I’m sorry, is this better? Check check… check. Jerry, pull the high end out, I’m still getting some hiss back here.”
Say something nice about Snkrs! >:(
Oh god my weekend is ruined now
You have made me miss my dog Mac, who has been gone over a decade, and was the Best Dog Ever.
Damn. You. Willis.
I didn’t notice Snkrs in the last panel the first time I read the comic. When I did notice, I had to stifle a laugh. Well played, Willis, well played.
Wow…just shove that knife deep in all our hearts why don’t ya!
So much for my ‘gets eaten by Fuckface’ theory.
That’s next week’s storyline.
My condolences, but that’s still the best laugh I’ve had all week.
Notice: Mike is not here, possibly because he’d be too tempted to be an ass. It could be that he’s staying away so he doesn’t hurt Amber further. In essence, he’s being extremely kind right now.
Also, I’m somewhat afraid of what will happen when Malaya snarks about this at work.
ya’know, malaya is a bitch, but I’m sure there are lines even she won’t cross
Yeah, no, she most likely would.
I predict that if she does, it will open up the great shitstorm that everyone has been waiting for.
Oooooh, will we finally get to see the Alien Parasite Amazi-Girl variant costume where she goes evil and beats up Malaya and dances to Jazz in the 3rd Act?
Or Amber, already weakened by grief, will just mumble something and let her get away with it.
Some people just really do not care about pets and don’t understand why anyone else would. Some people are also extremely insensitive and don’t care if their words hurt others. We know that Malaya is part of the latter category; if she also subscribes to the former, it’s entirely possible.
I dunno, I think Malaya would feel pretty lonely without Fuckface. She might have a shining moment of sympathy, here.
awwwww poor amber…….damn you willis!!!
This is one of those situations where the last panel is funny, because at least for me it was unexpected and caught me off guard, but really makes you feel like a terrible human being for even snickering to begin with.
I’m convinced this was your plan all along.
You mean snkring, right? ?
I’m sure Snkrs would want us to be able to laugh and remember the good times.
You do sad very well, stop it. I feel so bad Amber.
Will Ani be safe with Robin?
Well, he’s not dead, so Robin won’t think he’s food.
I noticed how carefully you phrased this, leaving open the possibility that Ani just might eat Robin.
Considering that despite all her previous snark, Robin is teary-eyed in panels 1 & 2, I’d say, yes, Ani’s probably safe with her for the moment.
Then again, Robin almost *did* eat the Silly Pink Kitten while still alive.
Why does stuff die around or on my birthday?
I know right? I had to celebrate my 15th birthday to the mourning of Catholics the world over when the Pope died…
Where’s Linkara with his kazoo when you need him?
I think you mean Paw, whose legendary skills at turning a kazoo into bagpipes is legendary. I could probably play “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” but I don’t think it’ll have the same emotional resonance as Amazing Grace.
Also, that last panel was both hilarious and sad. Kudos, Willis.
And then he asks me to have a good weekend. How can I when I’m cryin my eyes out chief?!
I-I-I was gonna make a sarcastic comment about my weekend being good but – then I saw the last panel [crys] how could I possibly make a dark and cruel joke now!
Oh yeah – like this!
I’m gonna have a great weekend – thinking ’bout buyin’ some hamsters ta eat and such.
Thanks for asking Willis awfully sweet of ya’ to care so much ’bout yer readers!
Now I just feel dirty
Is it a bad thing to be crying from a comic? It just reminded me of my kitty Figaro, I watched him go as well…..
This is supposed to be a happy time for her damnit!!! *bawls*
No, it is not a bad thing. Your reaction is genuine, and I am sorry for your loss. That won’t change my reaction, but it makes me no less sympathetic to your grief or Mr. Willis’.
I do appreciate that though, thank you
You wouldn’t happen to be a woodcarver named Geppetto, would you?
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
Oh my gosh this made me cry.
DAMN YOU WILLIS!
…and of course this happens while my middle-aged doggy’s recovering from eye surgery and the vet just informed us about some potentially worrying results with her urinalysis, not to mention I won’t be able to actually see her until I come home for Thanksgiving break. If anything happens to my baby this weekend, do I have a right to be angry at fate for the crappy timing?
Well, it had to happen to someone, given the amount of readers Shortpacked has:
Soooo, I’m guessing it’s a safe bet the dead hamster on the head wasn’t supposed to make me laugh?
I think Willis did that to purposefully trap people, so that those who laugh at it will feel horrible for laughing. It worked on me.
I don’t really feel bad about it.
Yeah, me neither. If you intend for me to think a certain way, I’m not going to feel guilty for doing so. At best, I’ll accept it as the point you wanted made.
I laughed while “awww”ing. It was a bittersweet funny. Mostly sweet. I don’t think I should feel bad about that.
Ah crap. That is just too sad. You are good Willis. Damn you Willis.
Putting a dead hamster on your head is not normal. But when you’re a white bitch it is. White bitches: not even once.
Her face in that last panel just kills me.
I never thought I could be so sad for the death f a fictional hamster.
honestly, the comments about the comic are more amusing to me than the comic… and i laughed at that, too!
Aw man. That’s really sad. A great comic though. Thank you Willis.
Now I really miss my hamster…
Funniest comic I’ve read in weeks.
Seeing this comic made me tear up a little, when I remembered my own precious gerbils that died after more than 2 years under my care last year.
I used to live in a condo that disallowed pets, and they small enough to be smuggled in. I had them just after my mom died, they really helped me pull through my grief back then so it was very upsetting for me to have them finally die. (T^T)
Thar’s a heap of good eatin’ on a hamster.
NO. JUST NO.
THIS IS NOT OKAY, WILLIS.
Compared it to Grant Morrison’s reaction to his cat’s death (Buddy Baker discovered that his wife and kids had been brutally murdered at the end of an Animal Man issue), I’d say it was remarkably restrained.
When she put Snkrs on her head, I was reminded of this old Warner Bros cartoon.
Here’s a full version of “Feed the Kitty”. I, too, have been saddened by the loss of several pets this year, and they are like part of the family, especially if they’ve been at your side for a decade or more. Damn you, Willis!
Forgot the link! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Apiv5AXQEU
SOMEBODY GET WILLIS HIS GOD DAMN MEDS!
Well that’s depressing.
At this rate, we can expect a Tim Buckley guest strip involving Amber’s pregnancy.
Well, even if the comic wasn’t supposed to make us laugh these comments sure made me laugh. (Loved the big ol poem entry.) Getting sad over a hamster. Didn’t see me cry when a hunter shot and killed my dog a few months back. Or when my other dog had to be put down a few months before that. Or when my cat had to be put down a week before that.
Shogo, you’re so manly and worldly and stoic. You just make me want to tear my clothes off and let you have your way with me right here on this website. You big strong strapping non-cry-guy, you.
There really isn’t any need to get so defensive that you need to mock other people’s reactions to this. There’s nothing wrong with identifying with loss, whether that suffered by fictional characters or their writer. While you don’t have to hold the same value they do for the animals they’ve taken to see as companions or even family, it wouldn’t reflect poorly on you to respect those that do hold such values.
Actually, 30 year olds who cannot handle the death of a hamster pretty much deserve to be mocked.
Yeah, that’s a very common view in elementary school. Adults are expected to outgrow that fear of emotions.
It’s not fear of emotion. It’s having a smidgen of a sense of proportion. You don’t have to be devoid of emotion to think Amber is having a bit of an immature overreaction here.
Of course, the immaturity of 80s generation kids regardless of their physical age is kind of the whole point of this webcomic.
No, if you think it’s acceptable to mock people for displaying an emotional attachment to other living creatures, you are not maintaining a sense of proportion. What you are doing is demonstrating a fear of being perceived as weak.
If I steal, I deserve to be charged for it. If I violate hospitality, I deserve to be barred by my host. If I try to oppress you, I deserve resistance.
If I mourn, you are in no way entitled to mock my grief, regardless of how little you value that which I mourn. It doesn’t matter that it’s a pet, a wounded rabbit I found under my picnic table and had to take in to be put down, a family heirloom, some item I’d worked hard to build or aquired, or even just some trinket that had sentimental value despite having been a gift leftover from a mutually bad relationship. My grief takes nothing from you, and no one requires that you stick around, be supportive, or feign support.
If you can’t respect that, the most generous interpretation of your character is that you are simply too immature to handle emotions, and fear how you’d be perceived for acting as I do in my time of grieving. When people can take things too far, then either go away or direct me to the help I need. Mocking me doesn’t do me any good; all it does is demonstrate that you have some need to feel superior to me that you can’t keep to yourself. What other reason would you have for that need than to cover for your own fear?
Treating hamsters as though they are anything but extremely cheap, short-lived rodents that reproduce like crazy is simply not healthy behavior. If your mourning doesn’t differentiate between the death of a hamster, the death of a longer lived pet like a dog or a cat, or a human being…it seems likely your parents utterly failed to teach you about death. Or maybe you were just deprived as a child, and have never before gone through losing a pet before? It seems quite strange to me, someone whose family went through a three dogs, several cats, parakeets and dozens of hamsters by the time me and my 3 siblings were grown up and out.
I guess this makes me a big bad internet asshole, but I thought the whole joke of this comic was supposed to be that Amber was overreacting. But then I read the comments, and obviously it wasn’t being treated that way. Very confusing.
Agreed with Willis and Zuche. I’ve gone through losing a good amount of pets and cried with each one passing. The first dog I ever had was a horribly mean dog so I was glad when he was sent away. But the second dog we had was a very sweet dog and even though we had her only a year before she died, we all cried, even my dad was a little upset. The third dog we had was 9 years old before running away 3 years ago never to be seen again. He was almost gone by then. I wasn’t very happy about it. The cat I grew up with ever since I was 1, Smokey, died my Sophomore year in High School, a year after my grandpa had died and I was in tears for hours. He was 14. Then there was the dog we dogsat for some church friends for over a year while they were in Bangladesh doing some missions work. Bandit finally died about a year and a half ago. I cried a little when I found out he past away.
So before you decide to post something like that again nitpicker, remember that this and other issues could be a sensitive subject to MANY people.
I’ll also mention that we currently still have a Golden Retriever who’s about 7, a cat who’s about 9 or 10 and another cat that’s almost 2. When they die, I’ll cry then too because they’re part of the family.
Mr. Nitpicker, in the future, please post from a real address. Being a dickwad and posting anonymously is against the comment rules.
Someone needs to be put down…
Because clearly the death of Snkrs making me roll my eyes and the reactions in the comments to be ridiculous means I should be killed. Dead pets suck and all, but come on. Someone threw down Amazing Grace for crying out loud. Worse that people are comparing this to actual people in their lives that have died. Sorry, but I just can’t take these reactions to a dead pet seriously.
You don’t need to die because you’re already dead inside.
Please, think before posting.
I’d explain why, but it’d take me the better part of 30 minutes to do so.
Apparently, you didn’t think before posting. As I posted above, pets become members of the family, especially if they have been with the family for 10-20 years like dogs or cats. That’s why people get emotional over their pets.
My family lost a very special and very intelligent dog at age 14 and two littermate cats well before their times at ages 8 (Ollie died in January) & 9 (Becky died in August – their DOB was June 15, 2002 – there is one more brother, Oscar, still alive) this year.
Did you expect people to react positively to being mocked for actually loving their pets and being sad when they die? I don’t necessarily weep about death like most people either, but it takes a monumental douche to make fun on people who do.
Commenters aren’t crying so much about the death of a fictional hamster, as about the remembered pain that Amber’s grief dredges up. I usually try very hard not to overreact to idiots on the internet, but only a grade-A douchebag would laugh at that pain.
I did, however, laugh at the comic.
Listen, if you feel uncomfortable with grieving a dead pet, that’s fine for you. No matter how little you value what was lost, mocking other people for their grief represents you poorly. If it’s not your grief, let it be.
Insensitivity to the pain others are feeling does not make you a better person than those who cry.
She put Snkrs on her head like it was alive…
(It’s way too soon for Chuck Testa comments, right?)
Today’s Sluggy Freelance also features hamsters.
So, there’s that.
For some reason I have a mental image of Amber going through a denial phase, with the gang having to stage a get-the-rotting-hamster-off-your-head intervention.
….this is terribly depressing…. i’m gonna go cry now
wow. i almost cried when i saw this, but i was listening to Project Chaos, an album of songs remade from background music from Sonic 3 and Knuckles. but even then, the power of Project Chaos was only barely enough to keep me from crying on the outside. on the inside, i was in serious need of a tissue.
it’s a good thing Saints Row the Third came out this week, so that instantly means my weekend will be at least a little awesome, even though i reached 80% (including beating the story once) a little too fast for me to be comfortable with.
….This doesn’t mean Amber’s gonna name her baby after Snkrs, right?
I hope she doesn’t. >_> Could you imagine a kid walking around with a name like that?
It’s beats “Apple” as one of the most ridiculous baby names…
Totally reverses the current trend of taking decent names and adding superfluous vowels though…
This reminds me of when my rat died last year. I was devastated.
Maybe Galasso can use the technology he used to bring Ronnin back from the dead to revive Snkrs.
Either that, or go to the underworld, beat the Grim Reaper in a limbo contest and win, not just Snkrs’ soul back, but the Grim Reaper’s eternal friendship.
That would be totally bogus.
Gee, I can hardly wait to see what you have planned for the holidays.
The sad fact is that the death of a pet hamster is ultimately as meaningful as the death of a family member or lover. Actually, I guess that should have been an ‘and/or’ to be completely inclusive.
This reminds me of when my cat died. Every night or so I’d walk over to where he slept, which was a fun quest if he went elsewhere, and say “Good night old man.” When he died it was right where he normally would sleep.
So I walked over to his body and with a brave face said “Good night old man” then promptly walked to the bathroom and cried like a little boy.
I was 26 when he died, I’m about 30 now and this comic…well…damn you Willis.
Hugs? Definite hugs. Lots of hugs are needed today.
It’s sad, but the last panel is awkwardly amusing…
It really is.
The last panel made me cry.
Poor Amber. :’(
I think you just made every pet owner reading your strip go cuddle his/her furry buddy.
Or cry over his ashes.
I keep hearing the vet say “Yes, he’s gone” in my head.
Well… I’m going to turn off my computer and be depressed now. Thank you, Willis.
Is it bad I laughed at the “Have a great weekend” in the info?
Nope. I’m pretty sure it was meant to be a ‘fun’ in ‘funeral’ moment. It’s not quite a Jimi Heselden moment, but it’s still well placed incongruity.
I think this cools for a Damn You Willis!
i know it has already been said before but, DAAAAAAAMN YOOOOOUUUUU WILLIIIIIIIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.
Damn You, Willis.
But was it….MUUUUUUUUUUUURDER?
Look at Ani in panel 2. The fact his paws look like fangs in that position aside, he just looks pure evil.
Willis, you’ve been entirely over-exposed to Randy lately; he’s rubbing off on you. This callls for some time apart!
Poor Snkrs. I’m sure Amber will remember what I full life he had, thanks to her and that and their memories will help her heal.
BTW, in the second panel I know those are Ani’s legs, but the way Robin’s holding him they look like fangs.
Or *are* those fangs? O_O
That furball’s going to live up to its name.
Damn you Willis!!! You’ve been waiting all week to make us mourn the whole weekend, wasn’t you?!
I-I don’t know how to react to that last panle part of me want’s to cry and part want’s to laugh. ;_;
Goodnight sweet Snkrs and my flight’s of Hamster Wheel’s sing you to your rest.
Oh no! A sad face! The saddest face!
Does this mean one of Willis’ hamsters died?
If not, DAAAAAAAAAMN YOU, WIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSS!
Yes. They both did. Years ago.
It can be years ago. Just late last year he showed us a pic of one of his hamsters in Skullgrin’s pretender shell.
…And Robin sneaks off with an Ani snack in the confusion…
Ani looks evil in panel 2. Bet you he has something to do with Snkrs’ death.
I was almost tearing up when I realized the joke and started laughing.
…am I a horrible person? ):o
“I laughed. I cried.”
Regardless of order, that’s a good combination.
I’ll let Kansas speak for me.
Also as one of his former minions is someone going to tell Galasso…?
What was that noise? Oh. It was the sound of my heart breaking. Gotcha.
Took this comic pretty hard, but then again today my Dad is deciding to end his fight with Cancer and live out what time he has left in as much comfort as possible. So yeah.
I’m so sorry!
Courage to you, and what comfort you can find.
Willis, I think you’re confusing hamsters with goldfish. I don’t any I owned going belly up upon the end of their lives.
How do I accidentally the whole word?
I commented before with an insensitive joke, but after re-reading it I can’t help but think of my hamster – he was so cute and cuddly and I thought we’d be together forever. I named him after myself and said goodnight – I woke up the next day and he was laying there and I though – he’s sleeping…
But he didn’t wake up – and so I prodded him and he wouldn’t move at all…
I cried. I thought he was going to be my best friend – I was just a little kid and I didn’t have any friends…
My family acted nice at first (by nice I mean – store bought hamster have this happen now and then – we’ll get you a new one later) , but it didn’t take long for them to be “You didn’t even own the thing for 24 hours – stop the crying – it’s pathetic and babyish. Just get a new hamster later!”
I didn’t want a new hamster – I wanted Mikey Jr back. He was supposed to be my friend forever!
I think how they treated me about mourning my hamster left an impact because I never really bothered to grow attached to pets from that day forward…
I’m sorry for my joke Snkrs – Amber – and to my Mikey Jr. I still miss you! I wish we could have been friends – even if not forever – just a little while longer…
I’m still glad we had that one day together…
Dammit, I just cried about my dog again.
The thing is, when he passed, I COULDN’T mourn. i had to be the “Strong One” in the family, so I wasn’t allowed to cry.Everybody else could, but if I showed any sign of mourning, it would have hurt them more, and I couldn’t do it.
And then I drove out alone to pick up his ashes from the vet, and broke down for about a half hour in the car before I could drive. My family later found out about it, and they told me I was just being a sissy. Even though they had been crying the whole time. But it’s different when you’re the one who’s not supposed to be sad.
Well, I don’t think you’re a sissy. A dog is a man’s best friend! Apart from the cats, hamsters, etc.
Well, I had him half my life.
your family is a bunch of dicks.
Yeeeah, I gotta second that. I don’t know the people, but on this, at least, they seem to be quite phallic.
And all of his. That’s a lot to lose, no matter how many years go by.
Thanks for sharing this. That’s the best medicine I know for sorrow.
At first I thought this strip had no punchline… Now THAT would have been worthy of a “Damn you, Willis.”
Well, I can relate. My dog died on my birthday, and I was at work dealing with jackasses. we had her in a sheet, on her dog bed in the garage for the night so we could take her body to the vet in the morning, and I went out, sat, and started petting her. You could hear me crying throughout the house.
I, too, lost a very special dog on my birthday. On January 28, 2006, my mom called me to help take her German shepherd/black Lab named Max to the vet to be put down. He was extremely intelligent and even got all excited when I would sing the song from the “Digger the Dog” commercial, as it had two “magic words”, “walk” and “leash”. See the original Digger commercial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=287kYEWYols
Even in comic strip hamster form.
And now the end of Shortpacked’s version of the infamous miscarriage of CtrlAltDel
You said there would be jokes, willis.
Yes, because the natural end of a short-lived animal’s life and the sudden, unexpected occurrence of a miscarriage are entirely in the same category of events that are things.
It’s funny, for my part I am reminded of Feed the Kitty. You know, when Marc Anthony puts the kitty cookie on its back…
And now I’m remembering sitting in a room at the vet’s office, holding my cat Stan in my lap and talking to him as the shots took effect and he slipped peacefully away…
That was over three years ago. I know exactly how Amber feels.
I remember breaking down when my cat was put down (I was pretty much seizuring)
Yeah, it was bad. He was really sick, and I knew I’d put it off longer than I should have, but that didn’t make it any easier.
I’m glad I could be with him at the end.
Yawn. At least it’s done.
Will this upcoming week still be a story week?
I’m not gonna get bummmed out by the death of a cartoon hamster. Nope, I’m gonna play Skyrim.
Good Good. Now Apprentice. Let the hate flow through you. Take up your red pen and prepare the termination paperwork.
Is it bad that I thought of this when I read this?
I’m actually welling up slightly at this pen-outlined suggestion of an imaginary woman crying about her dead rodent.
You’re a bastard, but a magnificent one, and I’m glad I’ve only got to read this strip after-the-fact on a thursday.
Whato o you say in time like this? oh yeah….
DAMN YOU WILLIS!!!
